Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on tragedy in Egypt

“I am heartbroken for our friends in Egypt, where the forces of terror took their brutality to houses of worship on one of Christianity’s holiest days. We can only imagine their pain — and send prayers for peace, strength, and solidarity in the face of cruelty that holds nothing sacred and respects no boundaries. This is a moment of indescribable sorrow, but the triumph celebrated on Palm Sunday is a timely reminder that evil is no match for the love, friendship, and faith in the future that Los Angeles will always share with Egyptians and people around the world." — Mayor Eric Garcetti
